X-Ray / Radiology / Radiographic Imaging Rooms
Primarily utilizes an electrically charged cathode tube to produce ionizing x-ray gamma photons to still-image some soft tissue, organs and skeletal bone structures for diagnosis and prognosis of potential health issues. Typical energy levels can range between 100kvp to 150kvp, with a downward table and chest wall bucky primary target beam area. Rooms are typically smaller in size from 10'0" x 12'0" and up to 16'0" x 20'0" and require shielded walls, x-ray glass control window minimum 18" x 18" or larger for a clear view of patient and procedures, and shielded door(s). Shielding must be calculated by a physicist or radiation expert retained by the facility. Shielding is based on the specific imaging equipment utilized and typically will involve several different lead thicknesses depending upon primary beam and secondary scatter radiation fields, surrounding occupancy factors and other considerations.
